Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
Surface PreparationBlank space if empty.

Proper surface preparation is required.

FOR STRIPPED, UNSTAINED OR RAW WOOD:

  • Before starting, the surface must be dry, clean and free of dirt, grease, and glue.
  • Sand the wood in the direction of the grain using fine-grade sandpaper (#150-220 grit) until smooth.
  • Remove all sanding dust.
  • To help ensure uniform acceptance of stain color and beautiful results, pretreat new or raw wood with BEHR® Water-Based Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner, following label directions.

FOR PREVIOUSLY FINISHED WOOD THAT IS NOT BEING STRIPPED:

  • Before starting, the surface must be dry, clean and free of dirt, grease, and glue.
  • Lightly sand the existing finish with 400 grit sandpaper to ensure adhesion. Remove all sanding dust.
Product Preparation and Color TestingBlank space if empty.
  • Stir BEHR Stain & Poly In One thoroughly before and occasionally during use. Do not thin.
  • Always test Stain & Poly on a scrap piece or hidden area of wood to verify desired color.
ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • Using a high-quality nylon/polyester bristle brush, dip approximately an inch into the can, gently tapping it against the inside to remove any excess.
  • Apply a very THIN, even coat following the direction of the grain.
  • Make sure to maintain a “wet” edge.
  • To minimize the brush marks and bubbles after staining, tip off the surface by holding the brush at a 45-degree angle and lightly run the bristles over the entire length of the wood.
  • Let the first coat dry for 1 hour or more.
  • Dry time may be extended due to high humidity, low temperatures, and inadequate ventilation or if the coat is applied too thick.
  • Lightly sand the surface between coats with fine sandpaper (#400 grit).
  • Remove all dust. Brush on a second thin coat following directions above.
  • To deepen the color, apply a third coat. NOTE: For additional protection, without adding color, add a coat of BEHR Fast Drying Polyurethane.
  • Please refer to the back label of the container for application instructions.

BEHR ® Water-Based Stain & Poly in One No. B6260 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 268.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I bought this to use on a brand-new outdoor potting table and it worked great! I lightly sanded any rough edges and lightly wiped the table down with a slightly damp cloth. I allowed this to dry overnight, then applied the product outdoors with a paint brush. It goes on clear with a slightly milky look to it. I applied 2 light coats to the entire potting table and it all dried with a clear, matte finish to it. I was able to complete the project in one day. If you didn't know I had applied it to the wood, you wouldn't know the wood had been treated with anything. Very pleased with how it turned out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fence Staining I used the Cedar color. It went on easy with a brush and didn't show overlapping strokes when done. This fence was never treated in the last 25 years since it was installed. After cleaning the Pacific NW green tint of algae off of the cedar fence and letting it dry, this product made my fence look like new again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish Bought this product to use on kitchen cabinets, especially where boiling liquids above the stove dampen the cabinets. After cooking on the stove top, I just wipe off the cabinets with a clean towel. The finish holds up wonderfully and still look beautiful with no peeling or damage to the wood!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations I stained a 60 foot wooden fence (Pine). I originally attempted to use a pump sprayer but it was too messy so I used a 3 inch brush. I applied 2 coats and it looks better than I expected. The second coat went on much faster than the first coat because the fence was new wood. I estimate it took 16 - 17 hours to apply both coats. The finished product was well worth the labor that went into completing the project.
